South Bend Condo Showdown

South Bend condo logosAfter writing about condos in South Bend, I’ve heard from the people behind two of the complexes – Lance Cleland of the North Douglas condos and Raj Alairys of the Stadium Club condos. Their projects are ideal for comparison: they are just over one mile apart, and similarly priced. Here they are, in their own words.

Lance Cleland on the North Douglas Condos:

This project will consist of 216 total condos. We will have a clubhouse with an exercise room, club room, kitchen, media center and a swimming pool. We feel our condos are unique because they are located in such a great area on Douglas Rd. between 23 and Grape. This is only a few minutes from Notre Dame and the new hospital not to mention all the businesses along the Grape Rd. corridor. Along with this great location the price range between $133,000 and $141,000 will enable people to buy at a very reasonable price. We do not have any competition as far as brand new condos in this price range. We are currently signing contracts on the condos and they will be ready for occupancy early summer 2007. We have 2 and 3 bedrooms available with split bedroom plans, all have 2 full baths, laundry rooms and dining rooms and great rooms.  Thanks and have a great day!

Raj Alairys on the Stadium Club Condos:

Stadium Club is ready now for condo sales. We’ve recently had two sold before the paint was even dry on the buildings (literally!).

Also, a very positive article was recently floating around the web, where they interviewed a couple of Stadium Club buyers. You can currently view it at this URL:

The prices are appreciating pretty quickly, too. They are now in the $135K range as of January 2007.

I’ve seen Stadium Club mentioned on sites like the Michiana Real Estate Guide as being built in the 80’s, but they are actually newer than that. They were built in the mid-1990’s.



Thank you both Lance and Raj for your comments and welcome to the BendAreaBlog.
